Walton eggs... or a few noodles short of a kugel

So, another request from my good dear friend ESW. This recipe can seem ridiculous, and that is because it is.... And, as my Jewish friend KA once told me, a few noodles short of a kugel.

Check out this ingredient list.  If you understand my directions in the photo, I'll be impressed you can see into my crazy mind.  I'll decipher for everyone else, those more normal people.

Walton Eggs: to serve 12 (I, obviously  halved it, as I'm not feeding 12, evidently 6)
7 eggs
1 cup milk
2 t sugar
1 lb of Monetary Jack or Muenster cheese, shredded
4 oz cream cheese
16 oz cottage cheese
2/3 c butter
1/2 c flour
1 t baking powder

cheese on cheese on cheese
Mix together the eggs, milk and sugar.  Add the cheese and melted butter.  Add in the flour, baking powder, and S&P.

Pour into a greased pan (typically 13x9), and bake at 350 for 45-50 minutes.

For the half recipe, I used an 8" x 8"and baked for maybe 35 min, I don't know- I could just tell it was done when it smelled (that's how I usually time things).

Since I don't current have a microwave (a whole other saga that will make it to the blog, one day...), I put the butter in the dish, threw it in the oven while it preheated, and then pour it into the batter.  Melted butter and a greased pan all at once! And not an extra dish to wash... for JW.

SO, back to the recipe.  This thing is crazy because of all the cheese and butter and dairy in general.  So there are two ways you can make it. Fat, fatty, fat. Or somewhat healthy. I can't tell the difference, so you might as well reduce!

So, use skim or 1% milk, 2% cottage cheese (or less fat if you can find it!), reduced fat cream cheese, lite cheese (if you can find it, I buy pre-shredded [JW does not like to clean the cheese grater], so this I sometimes have to skip and use full fat). And, if you shave off 1 T of butter, you probably won't miss it, unless you are my grandmother.

However, I actually thought there was to much butter this time around, which is hard for me to say.  I am related to her... and my mother.

Served up with a nice side of peas. JW thought it was the oddest dinner. But sometimes, I like to eat breakfast for dinner.  I mean, protein, dairy, and fat, what more do you want?
